Windsor, C. Knight. As a fifteen year old school boy at Eton, George Canning edited The Microcosm which was the work of himself and some of his school fellows. It was written in the vein of sprightly and well-tempered satire and was of high literary merit. It was so well regarded that Charles Knight the publisher paid £50 for the copyright - possibly the first copy money ever paid to a schoolboy.Diana Menuhin's copy, booklabel of S.S. Boyd.
